Artistic Statement

"To allow others to share in the astonishment of being, the dazzlement of existence, and to shout to God and other human beings our anguish, letting it be known that we were there." A Manner of Speaking: Ionesco's Words (on why he was writing)

Eugene Ionesco said it so well that I would only add that the problem comedies I write by myself or with Joe Queenan seek to reveal the complex below the simple and the simple beneath the complex. Co-creating such work with actors, directors, and other theater professionals lifts the soul. Connecting it an audience charges the heart.
